new house: kitchen

I am so excited about our new kitchen. We updated our kitchen 2.5 years ago. Major update- we knocked down a wall and opened it up to the living room. I love everything we did to it! So I knew in the new house I wanted it to be pretty similar. 

Instead of doing another dark gray island, we're doing white. We'll still do a gold faucet and pot filler, but we'll do black matte knobs and pulls. 

I love this look:

We actually toured this house and I absolutely fell in love with it. It was amazing. You can see more of it here.  I also would love to have our floors look like those! 

I still haven't finalized the back splash. I'm thinking white subway tile in herringbone, but with white grout this time (we have dark gray now). I love the idea of a marble back splash, but Dave says no. I know some people are over all white kitchens and subway tile, but I've always loved it. My parents did the kitchen in our house in the early 90's and it was all white and had tile. 

We'll keep our same bar stools from World Market. I had wanted to keep our pendants (love them!) but are looking for some other ones. I like these and these. The light in the kitchen above will be the light in our eat in kitchen space (here). 

Looking at all these photos makes me so ready to see it finished!
